Understanding the Proposed Plans to Develop the Port of Searsport for Offshore Wind

What: Each Friday, Maine Conservation Voters (MCV) hosts a one-hour webinar focused on important and timely topics. In March of 2020, Gov. Mills requested that MaineDOT conduct a feasibility assessment at the Port of Searsport to explore the marine infrastructure requirements necessary to construct floating offshore wind turbines. With the public release of studies last November and the ongoing collaborative roadmap planning effort, MaineDOT and the State need to continue work to explore the possibilities of bringing this industry to Maine while engaging in a robust stakeholder outreach effort to answer the important questions that will be raised throughout the process. Join Matthew Burns from the Maine Department of Transportation to learn more about the potential concepts and how the public can engage with this process.

When: Friday, Feb. 11, 12-1 p.m.

Where: Online. This is a free event, but you must register to join. Click here to register.
